Dawe bails

Peter Dawe is out of the race in Topsail district.

Regular readers may recall that the surprise in this corner was that Dawe was running in the first place given that he’d apparently already plighted his troth elsewhere.

No word yet on who might carry the Liberal banner in Dawe’s stead.  The New Democrats still haven’t named a candidate but are expected to find one later on Monday. [Update:  The NDP is running Brian Nolan.]

Meanwhile, the campaign is on and voting day is March 16.

Expect Paul Davis to win by a landslide.

I wonder if Liberal leadership will have anything to do with enticing another candidate to carry the red banner?

What do you think Ed?

Well since it had nothing to do with Dawe's name showing up on the ticket for a few minutes in the first place I doubt very much if it will have anything to do with replacing his name with someone else's.

and the funniest line from Jones in today's Telly....

"Unfortunately or us, it will be a minor setback"

"Minor setback"...do ya think?
